We stayed in a Silver Room from Friday 30 May to Monday 2nd June. The Butlins team were very friendly and welcoming. Lots of people were queuing to check in around 2pm but the queue moved quickly. The fairground was clean and the operators were very fun and friendly with the children. The onsite Spar shop had a good selection of sandwiches and snacks. The accommodation was basic and clean although a bit worn. Very spacious and good beds. Splashworld is fantastic for the children although I did lose my 5 year old twice for a few minutes as it was very busy and I was following him around but there was so much noise water and people he just disappeared out of sight. Beware of the huge jet of water into the wave pool which hit me right on the back of the head with no warning!!! Since my last visit 4 years ago, the temperature of the water had improved. Plenty of room in the showers and a communal family changing room. The Skyline Pavilion had excellent entertainment for the children and if they got a bit bored they could run around. Its a shame they let day visitors into the park as it means a lot more queuing for rides. But so many things to do for the children of all ages they never get bored. The only thing they don't really need is the pedal go karts you can hire to drive around the park. If you are riding one, there are too many people to ride properly and if you are walking, some of the drivers just don't look where they are going.
Bognor itself is extremely quiet!!! I'm not sure what has happened to the place. It has a lovely beach and excellent water quality but there was just no one there.

We booked via Sun Holidays, 4 nights for £130 in a 2-bed standard apartment.

Apartment was clean but the double bed frame was totally bent out of shape, they claimed to have sorted this while we were out but it was still too dipped to sleep on so we slept on the mattress on the front room floor every night.

Entertainment was top class as usual, swimming pool is due a major upgrade but still did the job.
The site is very well kept and looks lovely.

We won't be rushing back, our children are almost 4 and almost 2, I can't see what there is to entertain any older than this.

We ate at Papa john's pizza restaurant on our 1st night.Good value for money we paid a set price and had a choice of various salads and pizzas,which was self service.
The staff were friendly and helpful and tables were cleared quickly.
There is an outdoor fairground and a playarea for the children as well.
There are clubs and activities for children,and character photo shoots daily.
The evening entertainment is very good and there are different shows in Reds and Centre Stage on site.
It is worth checking the itinery daily so you can plan ahead.

Our overall experience at Butlins was brilliant. We stayed in the Wave Hotel which was lovely and we had premium dining which entitles you to set in the waves restaurant The Deck but if you fancy a change you can get vouchers towards a meal in one of the other restaurants which on Tuesday evening we decided to eat in Turners a restaurant named after Michelin star chef Brian Turner. We were looking forward to this and knew it would cost more than our voucher,s were worth so expected top notch food how wrong we were we waited an hour for our food most of it cold I was told they,d had a mishap with mine so mine arrived later than everyone else's it was tasteless. On the advert it said children could have anything on adult menu in smaller portion we asked for salmon for my 22month old granddaughter we were told we had to pay full adult price as they couldn't,t do a child's portion. While there 3other parties complained one refused to pay! Other restaurants were lovely especially The Diner.
